Hi all,

Very nice website here, i was looking the owners club and saw a post about it.

I would like to ask, i bought an Aurora R4 on the 12th and should be arriving around the 5th to 10th of march because my Keyboard is in back order.

This is my Specs

Intel Core i7 3930K Six Cores OC 3.9GHz
16GB 1600MHz
Dual GTX 555

What are the settings i will be able to play on BF3 ?

Also i want to MOD it a bit, anyone here have any idea of what i should put in it, lets say i have 1.5K budget to do the MODS in it.

Thank you

Congrats on your purchase! Not to sure about the GTX 555's performance in BF3 however as I havnt read up on it much. Id guess in SLI you should be safe on High.

Id ditch the 555's, put 2 GTX 680s in and buy a nice 24-27" monitor. Id go with the Samsung SA950D series.

The price is ? been looking and found that the price was 499$ that it ?

Also to do so i will have to upgrade the PSU and add more vent this is probably going to get so hot right ?

What PSU did you get in your system? if you have the 875W PSU you can easily handle 2 680's. The price of a single 680 is $499. Your going to have to check on the monitor pricing.

Youll be fine with the stock PCIe fan, maybe just add 1 more 120mm fan on the radiator for the CPU

With that Proccesor and the Dual GFX, you can run anything you want on Ultra specs.

I think that he may well be able to manage Ultra pretty well; a single GTX 555 does a good job with High...

That is a pretty new desktop card; you'll be lucky to find benchmarks for the single card, let alone in a SLi configuration. But they should be able to handle just about anything!
